13 Albums I Need to Check for 2017

We're actually getting towards the end of the year. I'm sure a few others will sneak in there, but these are the albums I still need to check out before the year ends for consideration in my 2017 Best Of lists.
Play Dead

Don't know what to expect here. The last one was very synth heavy. I hear this one is more rocky.
2Foo Fighters
Concrete and Gold

Yeah, I suspect their best days are behind them. But I'll still give them a listen.
3Black Kids

I really liked their last album. It was very '80s new wave influenced.
4Emily Haines and the Soft Skeleton
Choir of the Mind

I've always liked Metric, so I'll have to give her a shot.
5The National
Sleep Well Beast

Truth be told, I've never been that crazy about this band. But they're sort of a New York band now, so I'll give the album a chance.
6Kenn Morr
Along the Way

Acoustic indie artist from CT. Used to be a local Long Island guy. I always enjoy his work.
7The Killers
Wonderful Wonderful

Yeah, I suspect their best days are behind them. But I'll still give them a listen. [2]
8The Movielife
Cities In Search Of A Heart

It's been almost 15 years since these guys released an album. I'm looking forward to seeing what's up with them these days.
9Ted Leo
The Hanged Man

Never really knew much about him until he started performing with Aimee Mann. I'll give him a shot.
10Brand New
Science Fiction

I've been holding out for the CD. I'm not as big a fan as some people on this site, but I still expect that this album will make my Top 10 list.
The Source

I saw e's review of one of their older albums earlierthis week, and decided to check out their new album. Sounds right up my alley.
Skin & Earth

Didn't even know she had a new one coming out until I saw Sowing's preview of new releases for this week. She's been getting better and better.

Hey, nice, this album just got posted on Sput. (Thanks Sandwich). This singer has a really weird voice, but I kind of like it. Might even review this album when it comes out.
